Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a non profit organization formerly known as The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is one of the most widely known breast cancer organization in the United States. To fulfill a promise she made to her sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen's memory.
The organization was founded in 1982 and has since invested nearly $2 billion for breast cancer research, health services, education and more. Currently, Susan G. Komen has more than 100,000 volunteers and works in conjunction with a network of 124 affiliates worldwide.
BET Marketing Concepts gathered 40 people to attend the charity kickball tournament. The participants were broken into 2 teams to compete over the game ball.
“I knew before I started the company that I didn’t just want to run a successful business, but that I wanted to get involved in the community as well. That’s why we wanted to start making an impact right away. The event was a success and I am excited to see what we are capable of as we grow,” explains Glenn Baldwin, President at BET Marketing Concepts.
The tournament raised over $400 through the event. The winning team was awarded the game ball.
BET Marketing Concepts says they will continue to participate in community events in the coming months. The team at BET will participate in the San Diego AIDS walk in September with more events to come throughout the year.
